Painter Rabi Pirzada is no more a pop singer
Former pop singer and television hostess Rabi Pirzada has regretted that the government has not been supporting the local artists and despite assurances from Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar office, no progress has been made to buy his paintings.
عثمان بزدار کے آفس سے دو دفعہ فون آیا مگر نتیجہ سفر، کیا کوئ حکومت ہے بھی کہ نہیں۔ جو لوگ میرے آرٹ کے ساتھ یہ کر رہے ہیں وہ کتنے آرٹسٹ سے پاکستان کو محروم کر رہے ہیں۔ افسوس۔ کیا توجہ دلانے کیلیے کسی انڈین آرٹسٹ کی ٹویٹ ضروری ہے۔@UsmanAKBuzdar— Rabi Pirzada (@Rabipirzada) July 25, 2020
Speaking in 24NewsHD TV channel’s morning show 24@9 on Thursday, Rabi Pirzada said she has been painting for quite a long time. “After showbiz, I have been focusing all her time on drawing paintings,” she said, adding she was not a newcomer in the painting world.
“When I was away from the mainstream media I was doing two most important things. I was actually trying to find out myself and then doing paintings. When I did Umrah I realized that Islam gives immense rights to women and found all my answers then I came back and started to paint,” she said.
Rabi said she had been painting since the age of eight. She claimed that no one can draw a portrait of the founder of Pakistan Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah like she can draw.
Pirzada regretted that when she appealed for support to local artists like her then Adnan Sami tweeted in her favour. “I feel sorry for those people who claim to be a patriot but did not want to support local artists. I rejected the Rs6.5m offer for one of my paintings from Amritsar Art Gallery just because I wanted to sell my artworks in Pakistan,” she further said.
Rabi Pirzada launched her career in 2004 and her first song Dahdi Kurree came in 2005. Her other songs were Mujhe Ishq Hai, Jadoo, Kisi Ke Ho Ke Raho. Her song Kisi Ke Ho Ke Raho was composed by the renowned song lyricist Shoaib Mansoor.
She had also started content writing for news websites such as US News Box. She has also hosted a weekly television show. Rabi frequently makes guest appearances on Pakistani television comedy and talk shows.
In 2018, Peerzada made her debut in the film Shor Sharaba in the lead role alongside Meera.
